Mary Poppins Returns (****)

Creating a sequel to a movie as widely beloved as the original Mary Poppins is no small undertaking. Her iconic red shoes are an enormous challenge to fill, however Emily Blunt surpasses all expectations and, whilst respecting and paying tribute to Julie Andrews’ original portrayal, makes the role her own.

Deadpool 2 (****)

Witty, clever and outrageous, Deadpool 2 successfully builds upon the formula of the first film. With a group of misfit superheroes banded together by Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) to form X-Force, the film follows their mission to stop Russel, aka ‘Fire Fist’, before it is too late for the people of the future.
